Feel free to add shrimp or crawfish to this dish, I decided to stick with smoked sausage (instead of Andouille sausage) and chicken. The smoked sausage isn’t as spicy, and I have little mouths to feed! 🙂

Start out by chopping the onion, garlic, bell peppers, celery and tomatoes and set aside.

Slice the chicken and sausage. Turn the Instant Pot to Sauté mode and allow it to heat up before adding the olive oil. Add the sausage and chicken and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the seasonings, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, chicken broth and rice and stir. (If you’re adding shrimp or crawfish, remove the tails and add them now.)

Close the lid, turn the knob to sealing and cook on HIGH pressure for 10 minutes before quickly releasing the rest of the pressure.
